During the first Middle East war in 1948, Israel occupied most of the Arab territories under resolution 181. During the third Middle East war in 1967, Israel occupied all the territory of the country as defined in the resolution. In November 1988, the 19th special meeting of the Palestinian National Council announced the establishment of a Palestinian state, but its borders were not established.

[History] Palestine was called Canaan in ancient times, including the present Israel, Jordan, Gaza, and the West Bank. Historically, Jews and Arabs have lived here. Around 1000 BC, Jews established the State of Israel in the Palestinian territories and were later conquered by Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire. Around 70 AD, the Jews broke out against the Romans’ atrocities on a large scale, and were brutally suppressed by the Roman army. They were driven out of Palestine and flowed around the world. In the 7th century, the Arabs defeated the Eastern Roman Empire and occupied Palestine. Since the 16th century, Palestine has become part of the Ottoman Empire. After the First World War, it became the appointed place of the British. After the British occupation of Palestine, it was divided into two parts: the Jordan River to the east called the outer Jordan, the current Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; the west of the Jordan River called Palestine, including the present-day Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.
On November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly passed Resolution No. 181, which stipulated the establishment of Arab and Jewish states in Palestine. The Jews agreed to the resolution and announced the establishment of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948. The Arab countries opposed and rejected the resolution and declared war on the next day after the founding of the People’s Republic of China. By the time of the truce, most of the Arab territories occupied by Resolution 181 were occupied; Jordan occupied 4,800 square kilometres of land in the West Bank; Egypt occupied 258 square kilometres of land in the Gaza Strip. On June 5, 1967, the third Middle East war broke out. Israel occupied the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the war, that is, the entire Palestine.
The 19th special session of the Palestinian National Committee, held in Algiers on 15 November 1988, adopted the Declaration of Independence, announcing the acceptance of United Nations Resolution 181 and the establishment of a Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital. In May 1994, according to the agreement reached between Palestine and Israel, the Palestinians implemented limited autonomy in Gaza and Jericho. After 1995, according to various agreements signed by Palestine and Israel, the Palestinian autonomous region gradually expanded. Currently, the Palestinian side controls about 2,500 square kilometers of land including Gaza and the West Bank.
[Politics] On May 12, 1994, the Palestinian National Authority was established and Arafat was elected as the chairman. In November 2004, Arafat died of illness. Abbas took over as chairman of the PLO Executive Committee. On January 9, 2005, Abbas was elected as the new chairman of the National Authority.
In January 2006, Pakistan held the second legislative committee election and the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) won. Abbas appointed Hamas leader Hania as prime minister to form a new Hamas-based government.
On March 17, 2007, Hamas and the Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah) formed a national coalition government, and Chania continued to serve as prime minister. In June, Hamas and Fatah broke out in serious conflict, and Hamas actually controlled Gaza. Abbas announced the dissolution of the national coalition government, the implementation of a state of emergency, and the establishment of an emergency government. On July 14, Abbas appointed emergency government members to form a transitional government and Fayyad as prime minister.
In May 2011, through the mediation of Egypt, 13 political factions led by Fatah and Hamas signed a settlement agreement in Cairo. In February 2012, Fatah and Hamas signed the Doha Declaration and agreed to form a joint transitional government with Abbas as Prime Minister, but the reconciliation process has been slow since then. In January 2013, Fatah President Abbas and Hamas Politburo President Marshal met in Cairo and decided to promote the implementation of the Cairo Agreement reached in May 2011. In May, Fatah and Hamas agreed to form a coalition government by August 14th in preparation for the general election. In June, Abbas appointed Hamadila, the president of the “Successful University”, as the new Prime Minister of the Transitional Government. Hamas expressed opposition. After the dramatic changes in the situation in Egypt in early July, Hamas was in an increasingly difficult situation and the internal reconciliation process in Palestine was basically stagnant. In April 2014, Pakistan internally accelerated reconciliation. In early June, Fatah and Hamas negotiated the formation of a transitional national consensus government and decided to hold presidential and legislative committee elections within six months. After the outbreak of the Gaza conflict between Israel and Hamas in the summer of 2014, Pakistan’s internal reconciliation was delayed and Hamas announced its withdrawal from the national consensus government. On October 12, 2017, Fatah signed a settlement agreement with Hamas in Cairo, Egypt. Subsequently, the Palestinian National Consensus Government performed its duties in Gaza and took over the Gaza Port. On November 22nd, the Pakistani factions held talks in Cairo and issued a joint statement, unanimously agreeing to hold presidential and parliamentary elections by the end of 2018. On March 13, 2018, the Pakistani Prime Minister Hamdila team was hit by a roadside bomb in the Gaza Strip. The Presidential Palace and the Prime Minister’s Office stated that Hamas is responsible for the attack as the actual control party of Gaza. On December 22, 2018, Abbas announced the dissolution of the Legislative Council in accordance with the decision of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Pakistan and called for the holding of a legislative committee election within six months.

Pakistan’s 70% of its products and 80% of its services come from Israel. paragraph. The Palestinian-Israeli confrontation has severely constrained the economic development of Pakistan. The World Bank report at the end of 2010 concluded that the Palestinian economy has reached the level of establishing an independent state. In the past two years, due to the failure of timely external financial assistance and Israel’s continued blockade against Pakistan, Palestine has experienced serious financial difficulties.

[Travel] Tourism is an important economic pillar. The climate is pleasant, with a large number of historical and cultural monuments and rich tourism resources.
[Transportation] Highway: There are 5146.9 kilometers of various types of highways.

Aviation: Established a civil aviation organization in 1996. It was put into use in Gaza International Airport in November 1998 and opened flights to Egypt and Jordan with a total investment of 250 million US dollars.

[Financial Finance] The Palestine Monetary Authority (PMA) was established at the end of 1994. Palestine has not yet issued its own currency, and the local currency uses the Israeli currency New Shekel (NIS).
[International Economic Assistance to Pakistan] International aid is one of the main sources of income for the Palestinian National Authority. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is the leading international aid agency for Pakistan. The United States and the European Union are the biggest aid donors. UNRWA’s average annual total expenditure is about $1.2 to $1.3 billion.

The resolution of the Seventh Arab League Summit held in Rabat in October 1974 recognized the PLO as the sole legal representative of the Palestinian people. In November of the same year, the PLO participated in the UN General Assembly meeting and work as an observer.

On November 29, 2012, the 67th session of the UN General Assembly passed a resolution to formally grant the status of observer state of the United Nations to Palestine.
Relations with Egypt: Egypt was one of the first Arab countries to support the PLO and was the main base for political activities of the PLO. After the signing of the Camp David agreement, the Palestinians broke the relationship with Egypt. In November 1987, Egypt announced the reopening of the PLO office in Cairo. After the Gulf War, the relationship was indifferent because of the different positions of the two sides. Since then, with the advancement of the Middle East peace process, relations between the two sides have been normalized. After Abbas was elected president of the Palestinian National Authority, he visited Egypt several times. In recent years, Egypt has actively used mediation in the Palestinian-Israeli ceasefire, the exchange of prisoners, and the internal reconciliation of the Palestinians. In 2011, after Egypt’s mediation, the Palestinians signed a settlement agreement in Cairo in early May. In October, the Egyptian side promoted the successful exchange of prisoners between Hamas and Israel. After the outbreak of the conflict in Gaza in November 2012, Egypt clearly supported the Palestinian side and actively deployed its good offices to promote a ceasefire. In January 2013, under the mediation of Egypt, Fatah and Hamas leaders met in Cairo on matters of national reconciliation. After the dramatic changes in the situation in Egypt at the end of July, the relationship between Egypt and Hamas deteriorated drastically. The Egyptian military strengthened control over the area bordering the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip, shortened the opening hours of the Rafah port, and destroyed most of the tunnels that Gaza led to Sinai. In March 2014, the Egyptian side decided to ban all activities of Hamas in Egypt, and Hamas condemned it. In early 2015, the Egyptian court ruled that Hamas was a terrorist organization. In June, the Egyptian Emergency Court of Appeal abolished the previous decision to include Hamas as a terrorist organization on the grounds of lack of judicial power. In March 2017, Abbas visited Egypt and held talks with President Sethi. In December 2017, Abbas visited Egypt and decided to coordinate his position with President Seyce on the United States. In November 2018, Abbas went to Sharm el-Sheikh to attend the World Youth Forum and held talks with Ethiopian President Seyce to exchange views on the Palestinian-Israeli issue and the internal reconciliation in Pakistan. The Egyptian side also received a delegation from Hamas and Fatah to visit Egypt and tried to mediate the contradictions between the two sides.
Relations with Syria: Syria was an important base and rear of the Pakistani guerrillas. Some important organizations in Pakistan are based in Damascus. Hamas leader Mashal is also settled in Syria. After 1983, due to differences in political opinions on the settlement of the Middle East issue, relations between the two sides deteriorated. After 1988, the relationship between Pakistan and Syria has eased. In 1999, with the encouragement and support of Syria, the Palestinian opposition organizations in Syria began a dialogue with the Palestinian National Authority. In December 2004, Abbas visited Syria after the success of the chairman of the PLO Executive Committee. After Hamas took office in 2006, Syria expressed support for the government chosen by the Palestinian people, opposed the blockade of Pakistan, and encouraged Pakistani political factions to resolve their differences through dialogue. In November 2007, Syria attended the Annapolis Middle East Conference. In July and October 2008, Abbas visited Syria. After the turmoil in the Syrian situation in 2011, the leadership of Hamas dissociated and publicly demanded that Syrian President Bashar be stepped down.
Relations with Jordan: There is a special relationship between the two countries in terms of history, geography, and blood. Jordan is the only country in the Arab world that gives Palestinian nationality, and the Palestinians now account for 60% of Jordan’s total population. The appointment was the headquarters of the PLO headquarters. In 1970, relations between the two countries deteriorated, and the Palestinian armed forces were forced to withdraw from the treaty. After the beginning of the Middle East peace process, Baye has formed a joint delegation to attend the Middle East peace conference. In June 2003, King Abdullah II of Jordan presided over the Aqaba Summit, attended by the leaders of the United States, Israel and Pakistan, and announced the official launch of the “road map” plan for peace in the Middle East. After Abbas was elected president of the Palestinian National Authority, he visited the country several times. After Abbas dissolved the coalition government, Jordan stressed that Pakistan should maintain internal unity and rebuild order. King Abdullah II has repeatedly called on the international community to promote the peace process, support the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks, and urge the United States to play an important role in the Middle East issue. In early 2012, Jordan and the “quartet mechanism” on the Middle East pushed the Palestinians and Israelis to make repeated contacts in the resumption of peace talks in Amman. During the Arab League summit in Jordan in March 2017, King Abdullah II of Jordan, Egyptian President Seychelles and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas held a tripartite meeting to exchange views on the Palestinian issue. In December 2017 and January 2018, Abbas visited Jordan twice and held talks with King Abdullah II of Jordan. The Jordanian side reiterated its support for Palestine on the question of Jerusalem. In September 2018, Pakistani Prime Minister Hamdila led a delegation to visit the party and met with Prime Minister Lazaz.
